We at Yakima Valley Tourism, The Yakima Convention Center and the Yakima Valley Sports Commission, like so many others around the U.S., are sheltering at home to help limit the progression of COVID-19 and reduce burdens on our healthcare system. We do not have access to our main phone line at this time. The best way to reach us is via email as found on our contact page. Stay safe and keep the Yakima Valley in mind for your future travels.
